I love solving Sudoku problems because I feel extremely smart completing the super hard puzzles. The game is pretty much a process of elimination with numbers, and I love figuring out which number goes where and why. Not to mention, after reading a few simple tips online, I think I’m getting better at the game. Not too much better, but better.
The game has helped me unwind and relax a bit after a few super busy weeks at work. However, I’m not a speedy solver. Even on the puzzles where I think I solved it pretty fast, I really didn’t. Thanks to technology, I’m able to compare my Sudoku times against other players using the same phone game app or online game, and my times are really really really really bad. So my dream of competing in speed Sudoku looks pretty bleak. But that’s OK, because I still love the game.
